Full Details

Orbiting planet Earth in Warworld, Megatron and Swindle discuss the destroyed Decepticon Bludgeon and his plans. Meanwhile, on Earth Thundercracker, Ramjet and Starscream attack and destroy some airplanes (possibly Skystrikers) and tanks. Ramjet questions Megatron's choice to reanimate Starscream.

Back on the Warworld, Soundwave also questions Megatron's choice to reanimate Starscream as Frenzy tries to reactivate Darkwing. Megatron explains that Starscream has served him well, but the time may come to end Starscream for good.

Again to Earth - General Hawk complains to Flint that they need some backup, and Skydive arrives with only one robot, Optimus Prime. General Hawk isn't happy, but Skydive assures Hawk that Optimus has a plan. Optimus wants to talk to Megatron, and figures that will end the conflict. Flint questions Optimus Prime's plan (don't trust anybody's judgment seems to be the theme of the book), and then Hawk, Flint, and every other human disappears from the book.

Warworld - Megatron gets a report that Optimus is alone waiting for him.

Autobase (middle of nowhere) - Grimlock and Prowl argue about Optimus Prime's decision, Grimlock wants to help Prime.

Earth - Tantrum is attacked by Optimus Prime. Megatron attacks Optimus Prime and rips the Matrix from his chest, saying that a new Decepticon Army will be born. Prime tries to talk to Megatron, Megatron hushes Prime. Yes, he told him to hush.

Grimlock arrives with the reinforcements and the Decepticons retreat, Megatron already has what he wants.

Optimus Prime lies defeated, but still thinks his plan may have worked.

Now off to the planet Fara, where a group of Esk Clones are attacked and decimated signifying the arrival of the Swarm!
